Written by Lionel Bailly, who is a physician and a lecturer at University College London, Freud: A Complete Introduction is designed to give you everything you need to succeed, all in one place. It covers the key areas that students are expected to be confident in, outlining the basics in clear jargon-free English, and then providing added-value features like summaries of key books, and even lists of questions you might be asked in your seminar or exam.
The book uses a structure that mirrors many university courses on Freud and psychoanalysis - explaining and contextualising the development over time of Freud's theories. Many of these have passed into mainstream society, including the unconscious, repression, the talking cure, free association, transference, the Oedipus Complex, Narcissism and psychosomatics.
Teach Yourself titles employ the 'Breakthrough method', which is designed specifically to overcome problems that students face.
